Discover why by reading these simple rules:

NO:

No links to external websites*, workaway or other paying host list.
No spam or hidden advertisements
No arrogant/offensive behaviours or impersonal messages
No post duplicates
* You can add a link to your website but images shown have to come from manually uploaded files.

YES (TEMPLATE):

  • japan girlVolunteer/help request with a (description+photo) template
  • Travel companion requests (description +photo) template

  • Sharing volunteering experiences (with pictures, no link to personal blog*).

Furthermore, we ask members (hosts & volunteers) to:

  • 1) write a detailed description of the exchange they're offering or looking for. 

You can start with a simple title such as: “Volunteering opportunity in France”, “Cultural exchange in Iran”, “Looking for help in the UK, London”, etc...

IMPORTANT: If you are a host, please don’t forget to mention if you're charging a fee for volunteers in the description.

  • 2) always attach photos: you must have rights to use them, and they must represent the people, the place & the activities of the volunteer opportunity.
Also, see FAQ PAGE at the section "how can I register as host/organization?"

Sorry, but your post won't be published if it doesn’t meet these requirements. :'(
